The Department of Public Works started collecting leaves deposited at the side of the road in mid-October, with operations starting on the north side of the city.
However all good things must come to an end, and if you haven't cleared the yard yet, you have until Friday to see the street 'leaf sucker' come through to take them away. The DPW will finish operations on Nov. 30, and there will be no spring pick up.
DPW asks that you do not leave the piles in ditches, and piles should not obstruct the roadway. Simply rake up to the edge of the blacktop. In areas where there is curb and gutter, rake leaves to the edge of the curb so as not to obstruct the gutters. Leaves should not be bagged.
No tree branches, garden plants, or vines should be mixed in with the piles as well.
